Determine values for a and b that make each system of equations true (i.e., solve each system). Be sure to show your work or explain your thinking clearly. Homework Help ✎
6 = a · b0
24 = a · b2
32 = a · b2
128 = a · b3
What is b0 equivalent to?
Once you have the value for a use it to solve for b in second equation.
Solve both equations for a.
Set both equations equal to each other (Equal Values Method), and multiply both sides by the common denominator of both fractions.
Solve for b and substitute b back into one of the original equations to solve for a.
a = 2, b = 4
